Shark Tank India investors fail to fulfill their promises

The 'sharks' from Shark Tank India have fulfilled less than half of their investment pledges from the first season, according to a PrivateCircle analysis.

Despite committing $4.87 million to startups, only about $2 million has been invested. For the second season, only a single investment has been disclosed.

Potential reasons for sparse disclosure figures could be ongoing due diligence or technical glitches on the ministry’s website.

Some startups passed on Shark Tank deals for higher valuations elsewhere.

Investors on the show defend the rate of deal execution, with Anupam Mittal stating that 66% of first season deals were successfully executed.
